Avoiding third party/anti-virus interference with Hybrid Workloads Agent


Antivirus or third-party encryption programs may sometimes lock actively used files or folders of other applications. Specifically, anti-virus programs are known to lock files while running a real-time or on-access scan.

If any such third party application locks Hybrid Workloads agent application files or folders that contain configuration or logs, it may result in the corruption or unexpected behavior. Hence, it is highly recommended to add exclusions for Hybrid Workloads agent application and configuration paths.
